Does this depend upon location? I've been putting tetra paks into my recycling and they seem to be taking them...

"Or as we say, Recycling is Bullshit." This article is poorly written and filled with a lot of half truths. One argument against glass bottles is that it takes a lot more energy to create them than for instance creating a container like tetra pak.

I'm not sure what their motives are, but articles like that scares me.

You can put stuff in recycling and they will take it (where I live in Northern California) and then sort it out to landfill at the processing facility.

See for example the comments from the Recology Recycling Program Manager on this page: http://vault.sierraclub.org/sierra/201209/letters-255.aspx
